Biden's folly

EXCLUSIVE: Thousands of Haitian migrants who flocked to Del Rio were already working and living comfortably as refugees in CHILE and only set off for the US after Biden scrapped Trump-era deportation policy

  • The secret 15,000 Haitians who turned up in Del Rio did not come from Haiti - they came from mostly Chile
  • Chile is the wealthiest country in Latin America where they have been living in modest comfort in Santiago and São Paulo for the past five or six years
  • They traveled up from South America through Colombia, Panama, Costa Rica, Nicaragua, Honduras and Guatemala before landing in a camp across the Mexican border in Tapachula. 
  • 'When Biden got in, word went out and they decided, we're coming now. That was the decision point,' says migration expert Todd Bensman
  • 'Joe Biden opened the border so we decided we could upgrade our lifestyle,' the migrants told him
  • They flocked to the entry point at  Del Rio International Bridge in Texas after hearing they could cross the border there for free
  • Todd Bensman, of the Center for Immigration Studies, said the lack of smuggling fees has made Del Rio crossing the cheapest on the border
